He was subsequently treated by the team Dr on the scene. Head coach Owen Da Gama has since revealed that the player will be rested until a proper test is done. 

Thutlwa is Leopards’ main striker and was the league’s top goal scorer during the 2021/22 season. 

He was linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs, Sekhukhune United and Marumo Gallants. Gallants and Sekhukhune are believed to have made formal offers to the club which were rejected.

He has scored seven goals this season with only six matches remaining. His club Black Leopards are in serious danger of being relegated if the current log position remains the same. 

Lidoda Duvha are at the bottom of the log with only 18 points, 18 points below the safety position. Their next match is against Baroka, followed by TTM, Hungry Lions and City Rovers.
